Eleanor Smith School received a total Pupil Premium Grant of £27,600 for 2016-2017. 87% of our cohort is eligible for Free School Meals (59 students). Due to the nature of the majority of our students attending Eleanor Smith on a split placement basis at the primary site, with the mainstream school being named as their main provision, we do not receive the entire PPG allocation for all the students attending Eleanor Smith. AT the secondary site, most pupils attend on a full time basis. We have primarily used the PPG to contribute to the cost of a range of Targeted School Interventions, which enable students receiving these interventions to make social and academic progress (Please see the Analysis of the effectiveness of the previous academic year’s intervention offer at Eleanor Smith). In response to the analysis of the previous academic year’s findings, the school identified that they wished to extended the intervention offer further for those students funded for the PPG (Please refer to the current intervention offer below). Therefore, the PPG was used to contribute towards the funding of the employment of staff in order to target further progress in Literacy and Maths, along with the emotional development of students. The PPG funding received for this current academic year has contributed to the following:
The school’s comprehensive offer to support the individual needs of our pupils exceeds the PPG funding we receive.
The breakdown of these costs is presented below in Table 1.
The impact of these interventions can be measured in the progress our pupils and is reported in Table 2. Table 3 demonstrates pupils making expected progress in the school.
